politically charged controversy is over u.n. ambassador susan rice's comments five days after the attack. why she blamed it on benghazi demonstrations, officials now say didn't even happen. and why she didn't mention terrorist forces? intelligence officials now believe actually targeted the u.s. consulate there. democrats emerge saying the answer was simple, she was using these unclassified cia talking points which omitted mention of extremist elements because it was still classified and could have compromised intelligence sources. >> she used the unclassified talking points that were signed off on by the entire intelligence community, so criticisms of her are completely unwarranted. >> reporter: democrats accuse republicans of unnecessarily assassinating rice's character. >> to select ambassador rice because she used an unclassified talking point, to say that she is unqualified to be secretary of state i think is a mistake. >> reporter: but republicans say the problem is rice freelanced. >> she went beyond that. and she even mentioned that under the leadership of barack obama we have decimat
after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> we haven't seen the president like that in a while. >> testy. defiant. kind of his make my day moment. go after her, make my day. i mean, in a way, and you could look at this two ways politically. you could say, okay, did he do that because now he's going to nominate her to be secretary of state when hillary clinton leaves or did he do it to get it on the record so when he nominates something else like john kerry, he is on the record saying you didn't cow me to not elect her. >> an unprecedented var eed shae vote being nonwhite, do republicans really want the first thing they do in 2013 is filibuster the nomination of a black woman secretary of state. >> in that same press conference, he called her an easy target. i'm not sure what he meant, but it might have been what ron was talking about. >> a little postmortem mitt romney
's on knob hill. it's a prime, prime position. it's where the u.n. charter was drafted in 1945. so also all sorts of hist think. go across the tram and go to alcatraz. you know how much i love napa. it's a two hour drive away. >> and what's the price point? >> that's $279 a night. >> let's go to houston, texas, a hotel called the huse tonian. and i'm sure this is a favorite of the bush family as if they needed a place to stay in texas. >> of course, it is. it's a bush home from home, if you like. it's like a country club in the city of you might bump into george bush sr. at the manner restaurant or barbara bush in the spa. there is also an enormous activity center, 25,000 square foot. they have a rock climbing wall. they have lots of personal trainers. it's a really, really fun place to hang out. and that costs from $179. it is also very near the city's great art district and lots of great shopping. >> all right. that, too, fairly reasonable. all right, let's go to hawaii. you've always got to carve out a lot of time to make that trip. tell us about the hotel that is now one to visit. >> so
vowing to block u.n. ambassador susan rice is she is nominated by the president to be the n-secretary of state. graham said he doesn't trust her because she went on tv after the attack at the u.s. consulate with information he says simply turned out to be false. >> something else i want to ask you about. there are three separate hearings going on on the issue of benghazi. yet, senators mccain and lindsey graham want a watergate style select committee hearing on this affair. what is that, and is it likely to happen? >> they're saying there are too many different committees and disparate committees investigating. they call it stove piping and they want it to be all consolidated into one special select committee. watergate was an example. they also give the example of the 9/11 commission. is that likely to happen? the answer at this point is likely no because even the top republican in congress, house speaker john boehner yesterday threw cold water on it saying he doesn't think it's necessary and the top democrat in the senate says the same thing, and others, as well. i have to
, sort it all out. he will also say he had his own talking points separate from u.n. ambassador susan rice. that came from somewhere other in the administration than his direct talking point. so he wants to get all this sorted out. he believes it was the al qaeda sympathizer group ansar al sharia that was responsible for the attacks. >> so the question, barbara, is he is convinced that the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi had nothing, nothing to do with that anti-muslim video that'd been posted on youtube, that this was a terrorist attack by this al qaeda affiliated organization. the question is though, when did he reach that final conclusion? did he know that before susan rice, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations went on those five sunday shows and insisted what happened in benghazi was the result of spontaneous anger from that anti-muslim video? >> all the i can tell you, wolf, is this source says the intelligence reports that came in blaming the video, those 20 or so reports, this source says petraeus had those reports disproved over time after he testified or rather
